"Contempora (1981) is a sort of collection of sketches, reflecting Conrad Schnitzler's inexhaustible creative powers in condensed form. Like light refracting through a multiple prism, shapes and colors constantly change, backgrounds shift through...

"M=Minimal is honored to be able to present Conrad Schnitzler's last work. Only a few days before he passed away in August 2011, he created this unique, almost 70-minute-long work. Thirty-six parts mixed into each other create a walk through his entire...

"Filmmusik 1 is a selection from Conrad Schnitzler's archive.
In Conrad Schnitzler's sprawling archive, there are two tapes marked Filmmusik 1975 A and Filmmusik 1980 B. It is hard to say which videos this music belongs to, particularly as the pieces have been left untitled. Perhaps there isn't really any film material at all. The dates are of no great help either, since the tapes feature the same tracks, albeit in varying degrees of quality.
Filmmusik 1 presents an initial selection of these...

"Bureau B present part two of their Filmmusik double release. In 1975, Conrad Schnitzler recorded various pieces of music to accompany films which had yet to be made. Fittingly, he labelled this collection of songs Filmmusik. Only one of the tracks - "Gute Fahrt" ("Nice Journey") - would ultimately be paired with a film, now traceable on the internet for all to see. The music is included on Part 1 of Bureau B's Filmmusik double release, erroneously entitled "02/1980". Why the incorrect title? The tapes...

Originally released by Editions Block in 1980, the Yellow album contains recordings from the years 1974.

"The chronology of Schnitzler's solo releases in the 1970s -- and even more so in the '80s -- resembles a book with seven seals. Schnitzler..

"In the comprehensive canon of Schnitzler releases, the music on the Gold album stands out a mile in every respect. Judged on the sound alone, there is little to suggest that the material was recorded as long ago as the 1976 to 1978 period. There is...

Originally released by Editions Block in 1980, the Green album contains recordings from the years 1976 to 1981.

"Schnitzler's tracks in the 1970s were lengthy and shared a musical pattern which varied only minimally. Hence the green album has...

"Conrad Schnitzler is incredible. I would dearly have loved to meet him, to have been present when he, Seidel and Baumann were working their magic at Paragon Studio. Fortuitously, Wolfgang Seidel, co-author of these pieces, has opened up his archive of recordings to the Bureau B label. He and Conrad Schnitzler spent many years together experimenting with sound, capturing the results on the two Consequenz albums, amongst others. I had the honor of meeting Wolfgang Seidel at the Golden Pudel Club during...

"There was a particular type of artist who could only have emerged in the legendary early 1970s. Few musicians fit the bill better than Conrad Schnitzler (Tangerine Dream, Kluster). Revolution, pop art and Fluxus created a climate which engendered...

"A collection from Conrad Schnitzler's archive, recorded between 1974 and 1975. Just when you think you have grasped Conrad Schnitzler's master plan, every time you kid yourself into predicting what you are about to hear, the next record comes along...

"The music explores suffocating sounds that can be obtained by haunted analog synth textures and ultra hypnotic frequencies. A very creepy, extended drone manifesto. Supreme stuff!! A hymn to repetition, micro-events and dream-time."-Prog Archives

“About the Con-Struct series:
Conrad Schnitzler liked to embark on daily excursions through the sonic diversity of his synthesizers. Finding exceptional sounds with great regularity, he preserved them for use in combination with each other in subsequent live performances. He thus amassed a vast sound archive of his discoveries over time. When the m=minimal label in Berlin reissued two Conrad Schnitzler albums at the outset of the 2010s, label honcho Jens Strüver was granted access to this audio...

"Conrad Schnitzler (1937-2011), is one of the most important representatives of Germany's electronic music avant-garde. He was a member of Tangerine Dream and Kluster, and also released countless solo albums. Pole, the Düsseldorf-native musician Stefan Betke, looks back on a two decade career in abstract electronic club music. With Barbara Preisinger he created Scape Records and his own mastering studio Scape Mastering. The Con-Struct series is based off of Schnitzler's daily excursions through the...

“This record documents long-term musical partnerships; duets with artists who have helped me refine my creative vocabulary. Yet my deepest musical relationship is with the bassoon itself, the kernel of my inspiration. It is the nurturer, the supporter, the quiet glue in an ensemble. It is awkward, huge, and demure. Even as a child, I was drawn to its uniqueness—its textures, timbres, and a sound that inspires movement.
While I certainly appreciate orchestral playing in the Western classical...

“Bassoonist Sara Schoenbeck and pianist Wayne Horvitz have been musical partners for almost 20 years, notably in Horvitz's Gravitas Quartet (formed 2004) and his Some Days are Forever Afternoon (2015), both on Songlines. They formed this duo in 2018 to play a program of their own music, and this is the first recording. There is something...

One of a small number of Kosmiche classics by this composer and keyboardist. The CD has been out before, although I haven't seen it in many ages, but no one has seen the film in decades and decades! This is a quietly extraordinary release; highly recommended!

"Eberhard Schoener is hailed as the first German musician to own a "Big Moog" system, and was also amongst the first musicians to do an album of purely synthesizer music.... Another innovation was the unique fusion of Gamelan music...

This is the best known of his works...mainly because his backing band was The Police (then completely unknown). It mostly sounds like Eberhard, but you can hear a little bit of The Police in it too. Funny!...

One of a small number of Kosmiche classics by this composer and keyboardist. The CD has been out before, although I haven't seen it in many ages, but it makes a welcome return. The combination of Andy Summers' guitar with a small rock band and nearly...

Guitarist/composer mans the lead on this swingin date that also includes sax, bass & drums. Not fusion jazz, but also not fusion, nor rock, nor straight jazz. This kinda fits into its own little niche - I guess they are an electric jazz band or somethi...

"A veteran of Junk Genius with Ben Goldberg, T.J. Kirk with Charlie Hunter as well as varied projects with Tom Waits, John Zorn and many others, John Schott is one of the most dynamic guitarists out of the Bay Area. For his third CD on Tzadik he presents an exciting guitar trio with two of his closest musical associates. Beautiful compositions, spare and lean, and fabulous telepathic improvising makes this one of John’s best CDs to date."
John Schott: Guitar
Dan Seamans: Bass
John Hanes: Drum

''A virtuoso guitarist best known as a member of Junk Genius and the San Francisco jazz/funk supergroup T.J. Kirk, Schott is joined by tenor John Horton Murray (The Metropolitan Opera), bassist Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle) and drummer Kenny Wollesen on his...

Frank Schubert – alto & soprano saxophones
Alexander von Schlippenbach - piano
Martin Blume – drums, percussion

“The trio is comprised of legend and the doyen of improvised music and free jazz: the pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach. The term "accompaniment" is rather unsuitable for the trio: Frank Paul Schubert on alto and soprano saxophone and Martin Blume on drums, act as equal partners. All trio members at ear level are the source of ideas and impulses, their interplay is a subtle.

George Schuller (drums, bells), Mark Feldman (violin), Tony Malaby (tenor and soprano sax), Dave Ballou (trumpet), Howard Johnson (tuba, bass clarinet), Matt Darriau (tenor sax, clarinet, bass clarinet), Curtis Hasselbring (trombone, guitar)...

"One of the great musicians for deep and dubby ambient-techno. This album is full of all the classic elements and sounds as associated with dub-techno, and more!. Nice layered swirling textures, drifting spacious ambient, swirls of deep techno & elements of house that add extra layers of warmth and depth to the already deep album. The albums thoughtful moods and textured atmosphere explore a exquisite journey across tectonic deep spacious dub-techno across beats and rhythms, yet also chilled calming...

Very cool to see this nice German fusion set from 1972 released on CD and sorta depressing to see it marketed to the hipsters as a "raregroove classic reissue". Yeah. Whatever. In 1973, keyboardist Schultze joined Passport, and he stayed with them for ...

Note: These German CDs are new and unplayed, but they are 20 years old and have been stored on shelves in warehouses known and unknown until you now have the chance to buy them for cheap, and the covers do show some shelf wear....

Picture Music was Klaus' 3rd album and his first real 'synth' album to my mind. It's also the first album that has 'the Klaus sound' to my ears, even though his first two are also pretty good albums. This was recorded in 1973, but due to legal issues, was not released until 1975 on Brain. This beautiful gatefold digippack has a good, lengthy interview with Klaus about this album specifically. Most importantly, there is a 33' bonus track from the same sessions, which is released here for the very first time!

"Re-Release of Klaus Schulze's "Androgyn" (originally released 2002 as part of the strictly limited and long exhausted 5CD Boxset "Contemporary Works II"). The first track on "Androgyn" has again, like on "Another Green Mile", the cello of Wolfgang Tiepold and some odd voice samples added to interesting synth sounds. The long second track has Klaus on electric guitar and for good reason it's called "Back To The Future": Klaus plays the guitar with a "Gleiteisen", a piece of iron that he used in the...

"Re-release of the impressive Klaus Schulze album "Angst" - soundtrack for the disturbing movie of the same title by Gerald Kragl. Originally released in 1984. The film was actually shot after Klaus Schulze's score. He got the script and on the basis of the script, he wrote the music. Director Kragl told him, "You can write the music as you like - just stick to the script! I will cut the film to the music, not adapting the music to the film." Normally, the music takes its cue from the film but in this....

“Re-Release of the Klaus Schulze's "Another Green Mile" (originally released 2002 as part of the strictly limited and long exhausted 5CD Boxset "Contemporary Works II")."
“From 08:00 on, the previous cold and somehow lost and abstract oboe suddenly sounds a bit more concentrated, more emotional, even elegiac and yes, charming. Apart from the oboe you hear a voice, Wolfgang Tiepold's cello, and a guitar. Although the CD shows 5 tracks, it can also be heard as one long peace, and we know that not just...

Originally released 1983, Audentity was Klaus Schulze´s double concept piece, and 15th opus. It includes contributions from Ranier Bloss (sounds, glockenspiel), Michael Shrieve (EEH Computer, Simmons percussion) and Wolfgang Tiebold.

Originally a double album, this adds over 55' of bonus tracks, giving this set a playing time of over 2.5 hours!

"Apart from „Ballett 1 & 2" the "Contemporary Works" box also contained "Ballett 3" and "Ballett 4". These four pieces were originally intended to be one composition in honour to my mother who had been a ballet dancer and had died in 1998. I never assumed that the ballet would be performed with dancing. Then I would have to cut down to about 15 or 20 minutes and would probably have to throw away all my favourite parts! The music could have had another title but since it was the first production I did...

The first album by Klaus to be released outside of Germany, many people's first encounter with Klaus' monumental solo work began with this album and it's a great one. Highly recommended!

"Blackdance was my first album to be released in England on Caroline, a Virgin label. Before that [Virgin boss] Richard Branson had signed Tangerine Dream, and then he also contacted me. Of course, I said yes right away. Not just because Branson liked music from Germany but also since Virgin was at the time...

Klaus's seventh album and is yet another great CD from the great man of spacey electronics. This is a classic 70's space work & is a pretty necessary title in any collection. Written as a soundtrack for a porn film, this is 4 long tracks that ooze those classic Berlin space sounds and feature Harald Grosskopf on drums, which is always a good thing on any Klaus album. Highly recommended. This adds an extra track (22:26) not found on the original version, making it a full 75' album!

Klaus's seventh album was an album of music for a porno movie from 1977. This is more music created for the soundtrack which, iirc, was released later, and is yet another great CD from the great man of spacey electronics. This is a classic 70's space work & is a pretty necessary title in any collection.

“Re-release of the sought-after Klaus Schulze album „Cocooning", previously released as part of the strictly limited and long exhauseted 5CD Boxset „Contemporary Works II" (2002). First track "Easy Listening" is well-difined by the relaxed loops of Tom Dams and the filigree guitar play of Michael "Mickes" Luecker. The mysterious sounding "And She Is Kind And Gently" don't need any rhythm - a dialogue between Klaus and Tobias Becker, whose oboe and English horn is pleasing the ear on almost all Cocooning...

Klaus' classic second album, originally released in 1973, this includes a 50' bonus track (!!) recorded in Bruxelles in 1977.

“Cyborg is a seminal work in abstract experimental electronic music. The psycho acoustic and hypnotic effects on the listener are incredible. This double album features almost similar electronic equipments used in “Irrlicht” (acoustic strings manipulations, molecular machines, primitive keyboards). This deep meditative

This is a 1994 live performance, which includes a 20'bonus track. [SPV]

This title was completed and scheduled for release before Klaus died earlier this year, so this is the final album that he intended for release in his lifetime.

“Composer, musician and producer Klaus Schulze rolls out his extensive sounds, plays his legendary sequences and creates this unique 'Schulze atmosphere' for more than 50 years now. With "Deus Arrakis" the electronic legend now presents his new studio album.
Through his collaboration with Hans Zimmer for the Oscar-winning soundtrack..
